Farm walk notes:

We have been away off farm for the week. No rain and the pasture is really moving into the reproductive stage. Our relief staff have done a great job with maintaining quality in the pasture with residuals right oin target!. We have 8.5ha shut for baleage due to be cut now. The second sowing of turnips are poking their heads up and have a high population of springtails even though we used some insecticide with the roundup. They are due to be sprayed ASAP.
